Texas Tech Opponent Prospectus // Baylor Bears

2009 Texas Tech Opponent Prospectus

Game 1: North Dakota Fighting Sioux // Game 2: Rice Owls // Game 3: Texas Longhorns // Game 4: Houston Cougars // Game 5: New Mexico Lobos // Game 6: Kansas State Wildcats // Game 7: Nebraska Cornhuskers // Game 8: Texas A&M Aggies // Game 9: Kansas Jayhawks // Game 10: Oklahoma St. Cowboys // Game 11: Oklahoma Sooners // Game 12: Baylor Bears

Surving forward or the same old Baylor? Theres a ton of hype surrounding Baylor and for me, it's because of one very special player, Robert Griffin, III. That's not to say that Baylor head coach Art Briles hasn't done a tremendous job of revitalizing the program, but these sorts of things take baby-steps, but Baylor does appear to be on it's way.

Join me after the jump for a closer look at Baylor.

[Note by Seth C, 08/30/09 11:00 AM CDT ]  I've been trying to have write-ups on each and every opponent, but I've run out of time for Baylor.   Forgiveness appreciated, but this just means I'm focusing on content for the season ahead.
